Ahhhh! Now I see whey there has been so many state police sitting on 33 at the same spot. Also have noticed the drug dog truck sitting in the same spot. Don't bother me, I'm just in a hurry to get home since there are not jobs in Lancaster and I have to drive to Columbus every day to pay the bills.
Love it

i know they need time and evidence to build a case, but 9 month's? a lot can happen while their doing the sting. not saying bad job but more drug dealers and addicts happened during that period. but i'm no law enforcement. i just hope they don't start plea dealing and the 39 people that got caught wound's up being only a few of them going to prison

Legalize everything, price goes down, drug addict doesn't kill grandma for $10. It's a huge waste of time and money chasing trash around.

So they spent 9 months and I am sure hundreds of billable hours to only arrest 39 people on mediocre charges and only confiscate at most $5000 dollars worth of drugs at their street level prices? Which in reality was probably more like $2000 or less to the dealers.

I would rather our police officers be searching for murderers and rapists then messing with people who clearly are doing nothing but supporting their habit or making a meager living selling heroin.

I could walk into a college lecture room and find over 5,000 worth of drugs on more than 39 kids and that would only take about 10 minutes.
These cops are a joke.

More grist for the judicial industry mill. I guess their fake sex ads on Craigslist weren't pulling in enough suckers.

the time was a big disapointment but a lot of the murderer's are heroin,crack,meth,etc. USER's. besides they take a long long time finding rapist and killers. i would rather they take 50 percent of their time stopping illegal imagration.how long has that been going on???????

They are murderers!! They kill our kids with drugs, they create murderers because these kids get addicted and need their fix so they rob and steel. Two of the people arrested where the dealers for Jeremy Hedges the guy police shot in Circleville. They got him addicted taught him how to steel so he could buy drugs from them. He wanted to die he needed help he couldn't find.

Well I'm sure this will come into play when these guys sing. That is where the heroin comes from. Illegal Mexicans bring it here and sell it to these small dealers.

39 off the streets--80 more ready to replace them--probably made their first sell while they were watching the bust..
